A selection of photographs of our recent trek through the picturesque Pha Taem National Park in Ubon Ratchathani Province of northeastern Thailand. We have already blogged about Pha Taem in some detail so what follows is mostly a collection of photos from our last Emerald Triangle tour. We joined up with a bunch of monks from Uttaradit Province who were good fun as well as adding some colour to our park photos.
Being rainy season July’s a good time to visit the park since every where’s lush; fauna abounds, flowers are in bloom and the rocks are covered with myriad ferns and mosses.
It’s a small park so you’re not going to come across many mammals though bird-life, insects and butterflies and reptiles abound.
Great hike and despite it being rainy season the weather remained clement throughout. Our Pha Taem visit was followed by a boat trip down the Mekong to Kong Chiam Town for our overnight’s accommodation. Full itinerary details can be found here – cheers!
